  1. I know I've seen this in the forums, but now I can't find it. During my unattended install, when my list of programs shows up to install during RunonceEx, the list of programs installing goes off the bottom of the screen and I can't see which program is currently installing. How do I make this show up in a "scroll box"? (so I can keep tabs on what's installing so I can tell if it's doing correctly). Thanks,
  2. I got to thinking it would be nice if I could pre-designate the positions of my desktop icons during the unattended install process. {I like to put my Recycle Bin in the bottom right corner of the screen for example} Is this something that can be done? Is there a tutorial somewhere maybe I could look at?
  3. Well, actually Yzöwl (and HØLLØW), disabling it never even crossed my mind. That's a great idea! Thanks. and thanks for the string layout. I've been experimenting with different forms and not getting anywhere. I had decided to just use cleanup.cmd and forget it. But I like this idea much better. Thanks Much !!!
  4. Yes, exactly! All the examples of RunOnceEx I've seen don't use echo and such, so I'm unsure of how to put it in the RunOnceEx.cmd. I'm really new to all of this but I understand cleanup.cmd and start.cmd MUCH better than I understand RunOnceEx. SO, do I put it in RunOnceEx the way it is, or do I need to word it a little differently? OR am I better off putting it in my cleanup.cmd file? {I understand how to do that} Thanks!
  5. Can someone tell me how I reformat the line below for use in RunOnceEx.cmd? I really need to use this but don't understand enough of what I'm doing to reform it for use. I'm beginning to think that I maybe have to use either cleanup.cmd or menureorg.bat to do this. Is there a preferred "correct" way to do an account delete like this? --- [ECHO Deleting ASP.NET User Account created by .NET Framework 1.1... net user aspnet /delete] --- Hopefully, this will complete my project. I've just been working on this for 6 weeks and really need to finish up. Thanks for any and all help..
  6. Here is a link to the RunOnceEx.cmd Creator I'm using [ http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/runonceexcmd/setup2.6.1.0_RC3.exe?download ]. it's by eagle00789. Great program - I wasn't understanding ROE at all until I started using his little program. Now I at least vaguely have an idea what I'm doing. I'm also attaching a txt file version of my RunonceEx cmd file so you can see what it's doing. I guess I'll just manually change every key past key99. The program has a few other quirks I've found, but I figured out how to work around them. {I also wonder if the bugs are partly created by errors dring file transfer over the 'net}. thanks. AddPrograms-RuOnceEx.cmd.txt
  7. I'm trying to learn the RunOnceEx method of installing apps and have been using the RunOnceEx.cmd Creator program. When the program gets to the 99 key, it's stops counting. Everything above key 99 becomes %KEY%\099. I was going to go in and manually change the keys to 100 etc, but thought that maybe it won't work. Is it ok to continue the numbering right on 100,101,102 and so on. If so, I'll just manually do it. I'm slowly getting this stuff, but wow! it's confusing to me. I tried to search for my answer, but I'm apparently not wording my search right cause I don't find anything close. Thanks for any help!!
  8. Thanks MrJinje, I really appreciate the help. I was hoping that was the case, but ya never know. I'll push on with what I'm trying to do and see if I can get it working. Thanks again!!
  9. I've looked but haven't found an answer that seems to fit my question -please forgive me if this is a simple thing I should know. I'm very new to doing this silent install/unattended cd stuff and really don't understand a lot of it. If I have a file named xyzsetup.exe and i change the name to printer1.setup to help me identify it better for my own purposes, will the silent install switches like /s, /q, etc. still work correctly when trying to install the programs? Thanks for any help!!
  10. Thanks guys for the help!!! I'm gonna try both of your suggestions I think and see which one works best for me. I haven't had much time at all to try anything since I posted my question, and have to go out of town for the next few days, but I will try both ideas and let you know how it goes.
  11. g-force, yes that's about exactly what I'm trying to do. I just can't figure out how to set it up as I'm building my unattended install in nlite. I'm gonna experiment with your file, I have computer that I'm using as a test dummy.. a 10g hdd and I just reformat and change the os with every try. It's great for not messing up my main computer! I've got a LOT of learning to do yet. I really don't understand what I'm doing, but I'm trying! Thanks!!!
  12. clarification: I meant to say.. I want to make the sub-folders as I integrate the new programs using nlite. I can integrate them all day long, but can't figure out how to make the sub-folders during integration. My integrated programs always just show up under start/programs and no signs of the sub-folders, so I know I'm doing it wrong.
  13. For an unattended setup, I've been trying to get sub-folders into my programs list so my start-programs list isn't a mile long. I can't figure out how to make the subfolders go where I want them. I've read in the forums but I just don't quite get it as to how to. I'd like to get it so that I have, for example, start/programs/browsers or start/programs/text readers, etc. and then my actual items listed in each sub-folder. I just cannot figure it out. I've been learning to do some things, but I just don't understand this stuff. If someone could explain it in simple language, I would really appreciate the help. Thanks
  14. I need some help. A noobe to resource editor, I've been comparing usetup.and smss.exe with resource editor, and I would swear they are the same file. So, do usetup.exe & smss.exe mirror each other? Something was accidently changed in usetup and not sure what it was, and I'm hoping I can copy smss and write over the mistake to get my usetup back. It truly was an accident, my wife's new kitten jumped on the keyboard before I could stop him. If I have to, I'll copy the file again from the cd, and go thru the hassle of uncompressing, but I'd just like to be able to cut& paste if I can. Thanks
